VIDEO: Ricky Rubio throws passes, wants you to change your face

By Zach Harper | NBA writer

If Minnesota Timberwolves point guard Ricky Rubio has one type of signature pass, it might be the wrap-around pass that he has started to perfect this season. He's also known to drop a pass through his legs from time to time, but the wrap-around pass is something that he galvanizes his fans with from all different angles.

The one above was a pocket pass of sorts to a cutting Dante Cunningham against the Los Angeles Lakers on Thursday night. But he wasn't done there. He also drove the right baseline and dropped a wrap-around pass to Chris Johnson for the dunk in the lane.

Rubio finished the blowout loss with a line of 13 points, 13 assists and eight rebounds, but his effort wasn't even close to making this a competitive game past halftime.

When he wasn't dishing out assists to his teammates, he was doling out pep talks to guys like rookie shooting guard Alexey Shved.

Change your face. Be happy. Rinse, lather, repeat.
